white chocolate + bourbon cocktail


who else is ready to start mixing up some holiday cocktails for those thanksgiving & christmas parties!?! this might be one of my favourite cocktails to date. it is like dessert in a cup finished off with sweet white chocolate in the drink, in the whipped cream & shaved on top! if you don't know by now i LOVE (am obsessed with) white chocolate. i was so excited when green & black's organic asked me to partner with them & create a cocktail incorporating their chocolate (of course i picked white chocolate). green & black's make some of the best chocolate i have ever had. the organic white chocolate is made with madagascan vanilla, madagascan vanilla beans & raw cane sugar. all the good stuff that i love to use in my baked goods.

have you ever incorporated chocolate into a cocktail before? i found what works best is to shake the half & half with the melted white chocolate before adding the ice. this helps dispurse the white chocolate evenly throughout the milk! then add all the other ingredients & shake, shake, shake. if you want to keep it simple, feel free to skip the addition of the white chocolate whipped cream. i just figured when it is the holiday's, calories don't count:)
